Nevada lieutenant governor candidates Lucy Flores claims in an article on Friday that Biden will “plant[ed] a big kiss on the back of my head.” In a statement shortly after, a Biden spokeswoman denied that the Vice President or his staff were aware of the fact that Flores was uncomfortable.
“In my many years on the election campaign and in public life, I offered a myriad of shaking hands, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort,” Biden said in his own statement Sunday. “And not once — never — I think I’ve been unreasonable. If it is proposed, I Yes, I will listen carefully. But it was never my intention.”
Biden added: “I can’t remember these moments, in the same way, and I may be surprised at what I hear. But since we are at an important time, as the women you feel can and should share their experiences, and men should pay attention. And I will also.

“I’m going to continue to be the strongest advocate I can be for the rights of women,” he continued. “I will fight to build on the work I’ve done in my career to end violence against women and ensure women are treated with the equality they deserve. I will continue to women, the consultant, the challenge me surround myself with trusted, to see other perspectives than my own. And I will continue to speak on these very important issues, where there is much more progress in the fight to be made and decisive, that it must be led and won.”
But the result has led to a flood of images with Biden with different women at campaign events, and other administration functions popping up on social media.
A Vox.com piece was first published on Friday with the title “Lucy Flores is not alone. Joe Biden has a long history, they are cataloged to touch women inappropriately” several of the alleged episodes of misconduct by the former Vice-President, and claimed that “the media gave Biden a pass for years. It is not in the year 2020.”
“Biden was caught on camera a reporter from the back hugging and grabbing you on your waist, directly under your bust,” Laura McGann wrote in the article. “At a swearing-in ceremony for Secretary of defense, Ash Carter, Biden put his hands on the shoulders of Stephanie Carter, Carter’s wife, and then leaned over and whispered in her ear. (He whispered in the a lot of women have ears.) He also spoke of women’s faces and necks, while the other photo-ops. Once at a swearing-in ceremony for a U.S. senator, he considered himself the arm of the Senator’s young daughter, bent down and whispered in her ear, as she was visibly uncomfortable. Then he kissed the side of the forehead, a gesture that made the girl back.”

Speaking on “Fox News Sunday,” White House Advisor, Kelly Anne Conway told host Chris Wallace: “First of all, this woman Lucy is very brave to the front, and I want the audience to remember that Biden share Joe’s political party. He was there to help, the democratic party of Nevada, and your candidacy, so it’s pretty bold for you to go up against the highest levels, their own political party.”
Conway continued: If someone only writes ‘Creepy Uncle Joe-Videos,” you come up with a treasure of far more compelling information and videos we saw, as a Board s Kavanaugh’s nomination was tempted to be derailed … and his family is destroyed by people who had no evidence of what allegedly happened 34 years previously. I think that Joe Biden has a big problem here, because he calls it, affection, and shaking hands-his party calls for it is completely uncalled for.”
Meanwhile, several other democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls — including Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand — even in defense of their self-commitment to the ideals of the #MeToo movement called against a series of accusations, which you recently bad sexual-misconduct claims against their subordinates.
As three prominent senators have tried to make a sharp contrast with President Trump, the behavior of his own false allegations, the claims highlighted vulnerabilities, the to a greater equity and liabilities, not only in a heated democratic party primary, but also in the General election.
